Before Obamacare was passed Barack Obama repeatedly promised Americans, “If you like your current healthcare plan you can keep it.”
Of course, it was just a lie.
Today the Congressional Budget Office reported that at least 7 million Americans will lose their healthcare plan thanks to Obamacare.
The Washington Times reported:
President Obama’s health care law will push 7 million people out of their job-based insurance coverage – nearly twice the previous estimate, according to the latest estimates from the Congressional Budget Office released Tuesday.
CBO said that this year’s tax cuts have changed the incentives for businesses and made it less attractive to pay for insurance, meaning fewer will decide to do so. Instead, they’ll choose to pay a penalty to the government, totaling $13 billion in higher fees over the next decade.
But the non-partisan agency also expects fewer people to have to pay individual penalties to the IRS than it earlier projects, because of a better method for calculating incomes that found more people will be exempt.
Overall, the new health provisions are expected to cost the government $1.165 trillion over the next decade – the same as last year’s projection.
But, it’s OK.
The lapdog media will never criticize this president for this blatant lie.
Obama need not worry.
